Securing Expensive Classroom Equipment
TLX designs solenoids that solve our customers' unique dilemmas. This is an example of how TLX ingenuity was applied in the field.
Smart classrooms provide teachers with the tools to give students a more enriching learning experience. While these high-tech resources provide a more robust learning experience, they also create additional security concerns.
A commercial furniture systems manufacturer was looking for a solution to secure the computer desks located in large lecture halls. The solution would allow the lecturer to lock and unlock desks during the lecture and secure the desks after the class period. Ideally, the solution would consume minimal power as well.
TLX integrated a pull-type locking solenoid into a keyless system that required no power when locked. When energized, the solenoid would pull in, hold and unlock the desk until the power was removed. The system, containing 20-30 solenoids, was powered with a single, small supply and could be controlled remotely with a key fob.
